Famous quotes containing the word destroy:

    A tragic situation exists precisely when virtue does not triumph but when it is still felt that man is nobler than the forces which destroy him.
    George Orwell (1903–1950)

    The mountains, the forest, and the sea, render men savage; they develop the fierce, but yet do not destroy the human.
    Victor Hugo (1802–1885)

    ... in spite of everything, I still believe that people are really good at heart. I simply can’t build up my hopes on a foundation consisting of confusion, misery, and death. I see the world gradually being turned into a wilderness, I hear the ever approaching thunder, which will destroy us too, I can feel the sufferings of millions and yet, if I look up into the heavens, I think that it will all come right, that this cruelty too will end, and that peace and tranquillity will return again.
    Anne Frank (1929–1945)
